This low-slung midcentury home integrates into its forested surroundings in the Pacific Northwest.
Set in the southwest hills of Portland, Oregon, this 1965 home was designed by noted local architect William Fletcher. The International Style residence is said to have been inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s famed Farnsworth House—but it has a distinctive Pacific Northwest flavor all its own.
The current owners renovated the low-lying home after purchasing it in 2008, adding customized elements to complement the original midcentury architecture. The initial renovation opened up the galley kitchen, updated all the bathrooms, and transformed the carport into a dining room with high ceilings.
